A Time for Everything

I am thinking of a conversation I had with someone at a meeting yesterday.

The person I was sitting beside was in need of surgery.

In fact, they might have already had the surgery, except for one thing.

What do you suppose that one thing was?

High blood pressure?

Lack of insurance?

Fear?

No.

None of the above.

If I understood them correctly, a filling had come out of a tooth.

Surgical procedures would be delayed until this was fixed.

The surgery needed was of an orthopedic nature, far removed from the teeth.

Since I am not a medical professional, I can only assume that a problem in one area of the body could complicate the repair of another, quite different, area.

Once the teeth were taken care of, then the doctors would be able to tackle the other needs.

There are times when I think God works this way, as well.

We want so desperately to have healing in a certain area of our lives.

We want the suffering to stop.

“Can’t we take care of this now?” might be our prayer.

Instead of getting an affirmative answer from God, we are told that there’s something else that must be attended to first.

It may seem far removed from the problem at hand, but nevertheless, it is God’s judgment of the situation that prevails.

We want “C” to be whole and well, only to find that God says that “A” and “B” must be dealt with first.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “There is a time for everything,

and a season for every activity under heaven:”

God’s timing, sequence and order are perfect.

Even when we don’t understand.

    Like blankets floating on some days or like peering out from within a cloud on others, the mist changes what is seen clearly and what is not.
